Cultural Training delivered by The Black Card

Are you interested in funding at the intersection of environment and Indigenous issues?

Indigenous land management provides environmental care along with local jobs and connection to country and culture. There is a role for philanthropy to play in supporting Indigenous land management to continue to grow and flourish.

This highly recommended course will support you to engage more closely with Aboriginal people through building knowledge and understanding of culture and history.  A component of the course provides space to reflect on what you have learned and how you might seek to work with Aboriginal people in your capacity as a funder.

Location  Level 6/126 Wellington Parade, East Melbourne (AEGN Office)

AEGN Conference 2019
Theme Ramp It Up – Supercharged Giving for a Better Environment
AEGN 2019 Conference & Side Events

More than ever before people are coming together to reverse global warming and restore nature. Momentum in the community is building and there is a vibrant environmental sector leading the movement for change. Philanthropy can supercharge these efforts by amplifying the vision, building scale in key areas and supporting new ideas, bold gestures and new partnerships.

At Ramp it Up ! you’ll be inspired by AEGN members who have committed to ramp up their funding and their impact through the Environmental Giving Pledge and connect with representatives of the environmental movement. Together we’ll explore how philanthropy can build scale around strategies for achieving change; communications, advocacy and collaboration.

In addition to the Conference on Tuesday, 2nd April, delegates are invited to register for our Side Events including:
